Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) is a dynamic form of yoga created by Dinah Rodrigues, a yoga teacher and therapist from Brazil. She holds a degree in Philosophy and Psychology from the University of S. Paulo – Brazil but she has made of helping women with hormonal disorders her mission in life. Despite her age of 92 she is full of energy and still regularly travels the world to teach HYT.
This form of yoga naturally helps to reactivate hormone levels and to effectively prevent or eliminate the symptoms of menopause.
Through dynamic yoga poses, energetic breathing exercises, visualization and some Tibetan energy circulation techniques, HYT stimulates the glands associated with hormone production i.e. the ovaries, the thyroid and parathyroid, the hypophysis and the adrenals.
Women of all ages and physical conditions can practice HYT and it will particularly benefit those suffering from hormonal disorders (PMS, irregular periods, Thyroid imbalance, PCOS) in addition to those going through menopause.
Thanks to the reactivation of hormones HYT will also help women who have difficulties getting pregnant due to low hormone levels and offers natural protection against osteoporosis and cardio-vascular diseases.
HYT is contra-indicated in pregnancy and with certain conditions such as active endometriosis, large fibroids, hormone dependent breast/uterine cancer or history of, undiagnosed abdominal pain.
